Primary Carcinomas of the Liver, Hardback Book

Primary Carcinomas of the Liver Hardback

Edited by Hero K. Hussain, Isaac R. Francis

Part of the Contemporary Issues in Cancer Imaging series


Primary carcinomas of the liver are increasing in incidence in the developed world, probably due to dietary and environmental factors as well as the known role of infective agents such as Hepatitis C.

They are usually diagnosed in the advanced stages and carry high morbidity and mortality.

This volume summarises the latest developments in imaging of primary hepatic carcinomas, emphasising the multidisciplinary approach to the care of patients.

In addition to extensive chapters on the radiological issues surrounding diagnosis and staging of the malignancies, individual chapters on epidemiology, pathology, and surgical and non-surgical treatment options are included.

All treatment options are considered for both HCC and cholangiocarcinoma, including newer techniques such as TACE.

Only by a well orchestrated multidisciplinary team approach including epidemiologists, diagnostic radiologists, hepatologists, oncologic surgeons, radiation oncologists, and pathologists can these complex malignancies be managed successfully.
